Why is Chiropractic Care Critical After an Auto Accident

Were you involved in a Car Accident in Bluffton, South Carolina? 

These accidents can be extremely serious and cause lifelong joint pain and suffering if your injuries are not treated quickly and correctly. 

Even minor car accidents that do not cause damage to the vehicles can have a lasting result on your body. 

Many patients experience symptoms like headaches, dizziness, numbness, tingling, memory problems, insomnia, stiffness, neck pain, and back pain.

If you are experiencing symptoms like these, you need to find a doctor that specializes in treating musculoskeletal injuries, like a chiropractor.

You do not want to let this one incident dramatically affect your health and quality of life forever.

Arrowhead Clinic's chiropractors have experience and a long history of working with auto accident victims, which is critical.

In fact, many medical professionals believe that Chiropractic Treatment produces the most accelerated and longest lasting results following an auto accident.

Treating Chiropractor: Dr. Justin Zellweger













Chiropractic treatment at Arrowhead Clinic's Bluffton, Ga office is well suited for victims of car accident injuries. 

Our approaches to care are safe, sensitive, and all natural. This is why our patients often get referrals from their primary care doctors to be evaluated at our offices.

The goal is to help your body restore its natural functions and mobility while at the same time alleviating residual pain and soreness. 

The patients often see results like a drastic reduction in pain symptoms, reduced inflammation, increased range of motion, more mental clarity, and even a better night's sleep.

We achieve these results not with harmful muscle relaxers and opioids, but spinal decompression therapy. 

This uses intermittent spinal traction to reduce stress on the injured vertebral joints.

At the same time, the process hydrates your discs. 

These chiropractic adjustments facilitate proper motion in the joints and use electrical stimulation to reduce muscular and nerve pain in localized areas.

What Should You Expect During Your First Visit?

In preparation for your Free Chiropractic Consultation at Arrowhead Clinic, you will be asked to complete paperwork that provides background information about your current condition, medical history, and symptoms you are currently experiencing.

Some of the questions include:

  • When did the pain start?
  • How did the pain start?
  • Where is the pain located?
  • What activities the pain?
  • What makes it better or worse?
  • Did the pain start as a result of an injury?
  • It is essential to know if the injury was a direct result of a Car Accident
  • Describe the pain - is it dull, sharp, throbbing, or burning? Does it come and go, or is it non-stop?

The Exam with our local Bluffton Chiropractor

Once we know details regarding your medical history, your chiropractor will conduct a thorough examination that includes tests like; blood pressure, reflexes, pulse, and respiration, as well as specific neurological and orthopedic tests to assess:

  • Range of motion of the affected body area(s)
  • Muscle Power
  • Muscle Tone
  • Postural Stability
  • Neurological integrity

Chiropractic Treatment Options

While seeking chiropractic treatment immediately after a car crash is essential to your recovery and general health; obtaining care and guidance from a doctor who specializes in auto accidents and other personal injuries will help you obtain a full and fast recovery.

Car accidents can cause minor to severe injuries, and it is not unheard of for a victim to believe they were unharmed in a serious automobile wreck

The most common car accident injuries include:

  • Concussion
  • Whiplash
  • Back Pain
  • Lacerations
  • Bruising
  • Psychological Injuries

While most injuries are apparent or felt after a collision, some are not.

This is because your body will deal with the trauma of the accident by reflexively producing hormones called endorphins. 

These will mask any pain symptoms you would normally be feeling.

The Chiropractors at Arrowhead Clinics specialize in treating car accident victims, so it is important to be seen whether you feel pain or not. 

Our doctors will fully evaluate your spine and try to understand the effects the car crash had on your body.

The chiropractic will then use your diagnosis to create a personalized treatment plan for your specific injuries.

Minor Injuries Causing Long-Term Pain  

Some motor vehicle accident victims don't feel pain or discomfort for hours and even days after their accident.

The most common delayed injuries of car accidents are soft tissue injuries.

"Whiplash" is a soft tissue injury of the neck.

It is commonly described as pain in the neck, but can affect any of the extremities and down the spine. Other very common symptoms of whiplash injuries include:

  • Reduced Mobility
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Neck, Back, and Shoulder Stiffness
  • Dizziness
  • Slowed Reflexes
  • Numbness 

Being hurt in a motor vehicle collision can put unwanted pressure on nerves and can even diminish nerve flow to the limbs and other vital organs.

When your nervous system is performing incorrectly, all of the functions of the human body are at risk and can cause further complications.

From blinking, breathing, moving, and your heart beating. All of these can become difficult if your nerve energy is left untreated. 

By realigning the spine back to its normal position, pressure will be taken off the nerves and patients will experience almost immediate pain relief.

Diagnostic Studies That Provide Necessary Detail in Auto Accident Injuries

After an accident, some individuals need to prove that they suffered an injury in order to get their medical bills and treatment paid for.

Based on the results of your exam, your chiropractor will be able to accurately diagnose your condition and provide medical documentation to the insurance company so you can be reimbursed for your Chiropractic treatment after an Auto Accident in Bluffton.

The most common diagnostic tests your chiropractic doctor will run include; 

  • X-rays
  • Laboratory Tests
  • MRI

Chiropractic Adjustments Provide Natural Pain Relief 

Accident Injury symptoms make everyday tasks unpleasant and sometimes, impossible.

Chiropractic care can help relieve your pain and tension quickly, allowing you to return to a regular and healthy lifestyle.

All treatments provided by Arrowhead's experienced chiropractic doctors are natural and safe. 

These methods are preferred over costly surgeries and addicting and dangerous medications that only mask the pain.  

Specialized and trained chiropractors use chiropractic adjustments to fix the problem at its root source.

Spinal manipulations correct your structural alignment and improve your body's physical function.

Your chiropractor will use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, but sudden force to a spinal joint.

These spinal manipulation techniques might include: 

  1. Flexion-distraction technique-  Is a gentle, hands-on spinal manipulation that involves a pumping action on the intervertebral disc instead of direct force.
  2. Instrument-assisted manipulation- Uses a handheld instrument to allow your chiropractor to apply force without thrusting into the spine. 
  3. Specific spinal manipulation- Helps restore joint movement using a gentle thrusting technique.

In addition to easing your pain, chiropractic treatment can also boost your immune system, erase dozens of diseases from the source, increase your energy, add years onto your life, and promote your health and level of fitness. 

 Goals and Report of Findings

Our Chiropractor at the Bluffton location will install specific goals based on the X-ray and Exam Findings for your individualized plan of care:

  • Short-term goals include the reduction of pain and restoration of normal joint function and muscle balance.
  • Long-term goals are for the restoration of functional independence and tolerance to normal activities of daily living.

What is the Popping Sound You Hear During a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Adjusting a spinal joint may sometimes result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints. 

This is called a cavitation and typically makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles.

This noise is completely natural and causes a sudden decrease in pressure within the joint.

It is completely harmless and usually very relieving.
